A third workshop with irondale and stem students specifically a program called shrmp which was middle aged students giving presentations on climate change and things that are affected by it.
Another workshop with irondale but this time with younger kids, which I love
I got to teach a theatre workshop to STEM kids in nyc. This program is something that I love dearly and I am grateful to get to do it again and again
I taught virtual theatre workshops to steam students over zoom. This program is called stem to steam because we are all theatre artists teaching stem students theatre games to improve their communication, collaboration, creative thinking, and presentation skills.
I spent a lot of time volunteering in the costume shop in the University of Memphis learning and growing and helping because it also was mandatory for my scholarship hours for theatre
Again always happy to be back. In particular I had a good conversation with a man about how long he has been in Memphis and about his two daughters and how much the school systems haven't changed in years and how that affects the communities.
Happy as always to have been back at one of my favorite organizations in Memphis. As someone who grew up working in the soup kitchen with my family, it always feels great to get back in and give back to my community.
We made meals for everyone and I got to talk to a few people about their life stories and what high schools they went to many years ago and talk about the commonalities we still share despite age differences
We prepared food, enjoyed a nice service that allowed me to reflect upon conflicts in my life and how I approach them, and then packed everything back up again.
I went in and helped make the food which they had me mix the chicken salad with my hands (with gloves on) which was odd, but honestly a great technique for mixing it. I got to speak with some of the younger people and youth who attend about why they come and it was honestly super humbling.
